A.J.’s Miracle — Original Cast Recording

Posted on May 8, 2015 in Audio and Video

The show is based on the true incidents of the author as he served his mission. The story begins with a bet: $500 that AJ cannot fulfill an LDS Mission. The story follows his reluctant progress as he is sent to serve in Mexico. It is said that a mission is the best kept secret in the Church. Unless you go you have no idea what it is really like.

The era of “First Freedom” is in many ways a time very similar to our own. The country was engaged in...
